Artist Beth Galston leads a workshop at River Gallery School on making sculptures with natural foraged materials. Participants will go for a walk across the river to collect materials (leaves, acorns, sticks, etc.), then walk back to River Gallery School to construct their sculptures. River Gallery School is located at 32 Main Street, Suite 201, Brattleboro.
